Create Gem Paperweights
Courtney shows you how to make a personalized gemstone paperweight - which is the perfect desktop accessory and an adorable public display of affection. These cute little trinkets are made from a kids polymer clay, which is easy to roll, sculpt, and then stamp with a sweet message. After being baked in the oven, they become hard as rocks (or, rather, gemstones). Courtney then shows you how to finish them off with a coat of gold spray paint for a sophisticated look.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • Sculpy clay in colors of your choice
  • Cutting board
  • Paring knife or craft knife
  • Metallic gold spray paint and latex gloves
  • Masking tape
  • Small metal alphabet stamps (optional)
Learn how to:
  • Carve facets into polymer clay
  • Stamp into polymer clay
  • Bake polymer clay in the oven
  • Spray paint baked gemstone
What you’ll get:
  • An easy-to-follow class on how to make a personalized gemstone paperweight
  • 3 HD video lessons you can access online anytime, anywhere
  • Detailed supply list
  • Step-by-step instruction by expert instructor and artist Courtney Cerruti
  • The ability to leave comments, ask questions and interact with other students

This is a good idea. I will try this for a craft project later. Thank you! It would be cool to see other ways you can mold polymer clay.
